Top-rated Lifetime movie! Dr. Dennis Slamon has reached a breakthrough in his career. He has helped to develop a new experimental drug called Herceptin, which he hopes will become a revolutionary treatment in the fight against breast cancer. However, when funding for his project is cut, Slamon must turn to philanthropists Lilly Tartikoff and Ron Perelman to help make his life's most important work a reality. With the backing of his new supporters, Slamon continues to perfect his treatment, but his new drug proves that while it has the ability to give life, it does not work for everyone. This gut-wrenching true story explores one doctor's difficult struggle to find a cancer treatment that can save thousands of lives while giving meaning to his own life.
